ADVOCACY AND OUTREACH DIRECTOR
Sasha Sleiman started with the We’re The People project when Kim approached her regarding the issues around voting and why young people, in particular, don’t vote. Sasha was immediately intrigued by the project, then a documentary only, due to her passion for politics and history working on issues that concern college students and higher education policy at the state level in Washington State.
Sasha holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Western Washington University and a master’s degree in international policy with a focus on conflict resolution from Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey.
